For what it's worth and because it's relevant to this thread, I made a
similar proposal a few months ago:

The gist is much the same as Jan's comments above -- a way to track
investments (et al.), along with more specific roles/associations with an
Organization, such as an InvestorRole, BoardMemberRole, AdvisorRole, etc...

I've used extended vocabulary(ies) locally as a workaround, but it felt
like it was more generally useful enough to make it into the schema.org
vocabulary as a first-class citizen.
